About the show

Origin Theatre Company presents a show about the three conflicting sides of the same woman, played by four performers. More…

Three women, three stories, one person. Whose life is it anyway? The stories of three women--a young radical, a middle-aged housewife, and a clear-eyed world-traveler--unexpectedly merge. Did they travel the globe or stay at home? Did they write revolutionary poetry or study dental hygiene? Did they bring down the system or accept the status quo? Will they share the same fate of missing their true potential, or will they somehow reach beyond their individual limitations?

See it if You enjoy plays that deal with the sadness and confusion that often accompanies aging. You like plays without almost no set.

Don't see it if You only enjoy theatre performed in a very traditional style. Comedies and light theatre are your favorite types of shows. No comedy in this

Thought-provoking, Profound, Great writing, Great staging, Must see

See it if you want original theater that is thought-provoking, unique, and deep, and if you are tired of the same-old and want something smart & fresh

Don't see it if you want and expect kitchen-sink drama that tells you what and how to think and is all tied up in a bow at the end

75
Clever, Ambitious, Confusing, Slow

See it if Experimental feminist theater

Don't see it if Musicals

Confusing, Disappointing, Indulgent

Don't see it if it is boring and dull

Confusing, Thought-provoking

See it if Intimate setting with a small cast exploring how we change as we age.

Don't see it if You want to fully understand what is going on. The show description here is hard to match back fully to the play.
